Yorkshire Association

The Association sells the Snowdon Series of ringing books which, very generously, were donated to it by their previous owner, Christopher Groome, a few years ago. All surplus profits from sales are for the Association’s Bell Repair Fund.

A brief explanation of the books’ contents is shown below. The new ‘Diagrams’ assembled in 2011 (the 14th editiion) comes in hard back and is pocket size. The blue lines shown for the 202 methods illustrated are all laid out as Jasper Snowdon, the Association’s first President, did in his original work bearing the same title, which he published in 1881.
